Summary

Sage, storyteller, and wit, Washington irving created such staples of American fiction as the stories Rip Van Winkle and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. He earned his preeminence in early American literature with the masterpieces in miniature collected here: dozens of travel essays, tales of romance, biographical discourses, and literary musings. "His influence on American writers is unquestioned," wrote Edgar Allan Poe, and his stories have proved as enduring as the Catskill Mountains their author immortalized. "Exceptional talent. . . i am one of his most ardent admirers. i admired Mr. irving's work so much, in fact, that i gave it the ultimate praise; i 'borrowed it.' "-Edgar Allan Poe
